Edibles For The Adult Easter Basket

Sweets and treats are part of Easter – but what about some adult fun with special treat

Easter is a filled with lots of traditions, including sweets and treats. Chocolate bunnies, Peeps, and more fill bags and baskets with goodies which seem to disappear within days. Consumers will spend around $3.1 billion on candy alone for the weekend.  But what about having something special, maybe edibles for the adult Easter Basket. BDSA, a leading analytics firm which covers the cannabis industry shared it is another strong year for the marijuana industry. The reports reflects the growing acceptance of people consuming and the public becoming more accepting of medical marijuana.

If you decide to pop a little something into an adult Easter gift, the first choice would be gummies. BDSA’s data reveals 49% of cannabis consumers have used a gummy. They are tasty, dosed in a manageable way and discreet. Next would be chocolate edibles, easy to use and dispensary bought have convenient dosing.  Chefs have jumped into the game and, for some, the taste is something you would purchase at a high end chocolatier. You can also get other flavors including cookies and cream.

A couple of things to remember if you give a special treat. Most edibles will be in a 2.5-10 mg.  If they are a canna-newbie, make sure they wait 30-45 minutes after eating to allow time for the body to absorb the marijuana.
